I love jalapenos, and I am constantly pushing them on my friends. So many people are scared to try these delicious little peppers because of their ( well deserved) reputation. The thing is, its the seeds that hold most of the heat, and if you prepare them right, jalapenos can be downright mild.
Just don’t eat a seed, even on a dare.
These jalapeno poppers are my new go-to recipe, they have a teeny bit of heat, but not so much that my four year old cant eat them.
This recipe is enough for 20 poppers, and I recommend wearing gloves when working with the jalapeno seeds.
Cheesy Jalapeno Poppers
10 jalapenos, halved with the seeds removed
1 pack regular softened cream cheese
1/2 cup cheddar cheese
1 Tbsp onion powder
1 Tbsp garlic powder
Preheat oven to 425.
In a medium bowl, mix cream cheese, cheddar, onion powder and garlic powder until they are well combined. Using a big spoon, fill the halved jalapenos almost to the top, dont overfill them, or you’re going to have a mess. Arrange on a baking sheet and bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes, until the tops are browning. Remove from the oven, let stand for 20 minutes, and serve
Enjoy, and welcome to the world of jalapenos, I know you’ll be happy here.
